Nikon and Canon have fast glass, which the Pentax does not have.

What? There's a 31mm f/1.8, 43mm f/1.9, 50mm f/1.4, 55mm f/1.4, 77mm f/1.8, 200mm f/2.8, 300mm f/4 and 560mm f/5.6. If you want a fast standard zoom, Sigma's 18-35 1.8 will be available shortly, plus much of the rest of Sigma's line-up. So what on Earth could you be talking about?

You must not know Canons lineup 17 4 TSE, 24 3.5 TSE, 45 2.5 TSE, 24 1.4, 35 1.4, 50 1.2, 50 1.4, 50 1.2, 85 1.8, 180 3.5 macro, 200 1.8, 200 2.0, 300 2.8, 400 2.8, 500 4, 600 4, 800 5.6, 1200 5.6

Those are just fast Full frame Canon primes, this does not include Canons slower primes aps-c lenses, Nikon or any zoom lenses from Nikon or Canon.

Those Sigma lens you talk about, many of them work on Canon and Nikon FF cameras as well. They are full frame lenses. I don't know if or how many full frame lenses Pentax makes, they don't specify it.

Just in this comparison, Pentax does not have fast glass in comparison to Canon and has a lot of fast glass that Pentax does not have, which was my statement of fact, you have said nothing to change that.

You can see all Canon Lenses here. It would be good if there was a website to see all pentax lenses for a full comparison.
